7:03 pm
>> meteorologist also call that, i have heard them call that the call or the scream of the actual storm itself. it is mainly just wind. again you see more than transformers going out. our viewers wanted to be able to hear the natural sound of that. so we got that audio up for you. many more of the dramatic images are coming out. continue to send those but please do it quickly. and my twitter page we will put that up for you as well. let's get to jeff rent from the official management agency he joins us by phone. jeff, you are with us?
